Below you will find an excerpt of the many free
main functionalities in fx-project Open Source.

Creation

Recording and administration of Master data of the complete client system (= own company data), the project clients/initiators, the contractual partners, the internal or external employees including their Contract data, as well as other contacted companies and/or persons.

For employees or contractors Roles (Administration, project management, etc.) and Skills with optional experience rating can be assigned. Likewise, Annual leave can be entered for employees, as well as Weekly and overtime hours can be set.

Furthermore, up to 9,999 Main projects (= mother projects) can be entered, as well as existing projects copied.

Planning

Planning and managing all projects in Text form (Detail).

To each task (= work package) employees or contractors can be assigned as human resources (HR) (= Resource planning). A group of persons can be assigned to a team to simplify resource planning (= Team building).

Execution

Enter or manage working hours in the Time recording (Day). Working times can be "approved" by a superior, i.e. these times can no longer be changed - useful e.g. for accounting. Furthermore, working times can be transfered to another task, e.g. in the case of an incorrect entry.

Extensive management of Absences (Holiday, sick, training, etc.) and Appointments. An optional Control system is also integrated, i.e. an employee can only request leave, for example, and this must be accepted and confirmed by a superior.

Control

Besides the possibility to check all projects constantly, fx-project has the so-called Control center. This is the main contact point for fx-project and offers the following important sections:

  • The Tasks section shows a listing of the assigned tasks due in the coming days incl. effort and urgency information sorted by priority.
  • The section Progress estimation shows a listing of all assigned tasks for which a progress estimation has been requested or can be entered.
  • The Documents section shows a listing of all new and not yet viewed assigned eligible documents.
  • The Milestones section shows a listing of all upcoming active or planned milestone dates of assigned projects/tasks.
  • The Appointments section shows a listing of all own or third-party authorised absence appointments of a certain period with the possibility to confirm or reject third-party authorised absence requests.

Reporting

fx-project has by default a variety of reports.

For persons, there is the Main data sheet, a listing of all important personal data, as well as a Phone book, a Communication report or a Holiday schedule with optional display of working hours.

For projects, there is the Dashboard, a display of all important project data of the selected project level. Furthermore, standard reports such as Gantt, Network Plan Diagram, Project Structure Plan (PSP), as well as Cost and/or Progress Reports are, of course, available.

For time data, there is the Performance proof, a listing of all activities carried out depending on the filter and display criteria set. The so-called Time data report offers a clear listing of the times according to the recorder times.

Completion

In addition to the possibility of Archiving expired main projects, it is of course also possible to Destroy complete main projects, i.e. to remove all entries from the database without leaving any residue after a corresponding warning notice.

Interfaces

All reports can be created as PDF (= Printable Document Format) or CSV (= Comma Separated Values) by default.

All appointments are also prepared as ICS file (= iCalender File) and can be downloaded. iCalendar is a data format for the exchange of calendar contents, i.e. you can import this file afterwards into another calendar programme.

For persons, there is also the option of exporting or importing them as XML files (Extensible Markup Language).

Administration

In the administration area, all Settings for the client can be made, such as defining Holidays or Project categories or creating Reference values, i.e. providing certain selection fields such as "Country codes", "Address types" or "Communication types" etc. with your own texts.

Furthermore, Users can be created here, who are allowed to log in to fx-project, as well as their assignment to Profiles, i.e. a group of defined programme functions and Passwords. If desired, you can also create your own Colour design for the visual representation of fx-project.

In addition to the general definition of Permissions, the Skills to be assigned can also be expanded and grouped here, and an optional Department structure can be defined and managed.

Below you will find an excerpt of the additional functionalities in fx-project Open Source
that the package Project Matrix + Skill Manager offers you.

Planning

Of course, projects are the highlight of a modern PM system, especially in fx-project with the unique Dynamic Project Matrix interface during project planning.

Simply plan your project on the Calendar with the mouse, assign the necessary Resources with a click and immediately see how they are utilised. Quite elegantly, the Workload of resources for each individual task is graphically tracked and dynamically changed when tasks or sub-projects are moved, so that you immediately find the best Time for execution. With this Task planner, the necessary tasks and resources are quickly defined. Tasks that belong together organisationally or temporally are grouped into sub-projects and result in a tidy Project structure.


Reporting

Would you like to see a graphical overview of which Skills your employees have used, trained and improved in carrying out your work? No problem with this report.

Below you will find an excerpt of the additional functionalities in fx-project Open Source
that the package Project Extensions offers you.

Creation

Create new or change existing Order requests incl. definition of an order title, contact person, completion date, order targets and/or comments. Once an order has been approved, a new Main project can be created from it with a simple click.

Planning

Define Standard hourly rates for projects depending on the client or person - up to Skills (abilities) used.

Integration of an optional Budget approval procedure, i.e. planned project budgets are no longer automatically available, but can be defined as Limits, which must first be Approved and released before work on the project can begin - thus preventing budgets being exceeded.

Set Weekly schedules at both project and person level. With this, schedules can be created to the minute, which can be handed out to the employees with information about what work has to be done when and where.

Control

Get more control over your projects by integrating Warnings. This is the only way to ensure that projects do not get out of hand, as the project manager can be informed daily about the current status and/or be notified by e-mail.

Reporting

Are you also of the opinion: "A picture is worth a thousand words".

No wishes are left unfulfilled here, because this package contains a huge number of additional reports of all kinds, such as Effort plans, Detail reports, MTA (Milestone Trend Analyses, TTA (Time Trend Analyses) or EVA (Earned Value Analyses).

In terms of costs, you get the Budget Report, as well as a report of all Project ratios.

Also included is an extended Progress functionality, i.e. explicit progress requests can be sent to all project participants in order to receive feedback regarding the current project status.

A special report here is the so-called Multi-Report or Project Status Report. You can compile your own project reports from approx. 100 attributes and save them for later use.

Interfaces

You want to export project structures and import them again - even in other applications. No problem with these interface functionalities - a simple CSV text file is enough.

Below you will find an excerpt of the additional functionalities in fx-project Open Source
that the package Time-Registration Extensions offers you.

Execution

In your company, you mainly always work on a few tasks at the same time per day or you need to quickly record time for a task over a longer period of time, then fx-project offers you just the right thing with the extended time recording modules TR (Week/Month) and TR (Sum).

Reporting

The Time cost report, which is based on the time recording, shows an exact report of the costs incurred.

Interfaces

If your employees are often away from their workplace or if there is no computer available, they can still check, change or enter their time recording at any time with their smartphone using this fx-project Time recording APP.

Below you will find an excerpt of the additional functionalities in fx-project Open Source
that the package Travel Expenses offers you.

Creation

Definition of the annual travel allowances for km/Renumeration and Accommodation, thereby individually expandable for required countries at any time.

Execution

Recording of Domestic and abroad travels incl. Daily allowances such as per diems and/or Receipts such as repair invoices, fuel receipts, parking fees, hotel accommodation etc.

Corresponding to the time recording, the travel expense recording also offers the possibility of the Approval process.

Reporting

An exact report of the costs incurred per travel is shown in the Travel cost report, which is based on the travel cost entry.

Below you will find an excerpt of the additional functionalities in fx-project Open Source
that the package Material offers you.

Creation

Entering a new material in the Material definition in the creation mode, either as an Immediate material, i.e. which is to be assigned directly once to a task, or as a Consumption or Time material, i.e. which is to be able to be entered on a day-by-day, piece-by-piece or hour-by-hour basis, thereby causing costs and/or generating income.

In the other action modes, the data of an existing material can be edited, viewed or deleted.

Execution

Recording of the Used pieces of a material or the Used times for a task on a certain day including an optional description and/or comment. If authorised, the Material registration can also be carried out for another person. Likewise, daily, weekly, monthly or yearly overviews of the material entries carried out can be displayed.

Corresponding to the time recording, the material recording also offers the possibility of the Approval process.

Recording and management of the Material stock of consumables that have been defined as Stock items. If the corresponding stock item has a minimum or maximum stock, the material status is signalled according to the current stock by means of traffic light graphics in order to be able to carry out Material reorders in time, for example.

Reporting

A list of all defined materials including their assignment to tasks and detailed consumption is shown in the Material report, which is based on the material registration.

Below you will find an excerpt of the additional functionalities in fx-project Open Source
that the package DMS offers you.

DMS (Document-Management-System)

The Document Manager offers an easy way to add any Document (images, reports, evaluations, etc.) to the following categories via Drag & Drop: Global, Invoices, Materials, Milestones, Employees, Contractors or Projects. Furthermore, the storage location or a detailed description can be stored for each document and/or auto-versioning can be activated.

Documents can be Checked out, edited and Checked back in.

A detailed History log is created for each document, i.e. you always know which employee has already viewed an important document or who last made which changes and when.

Administration

Individual permissions can be assigned for each created document, i.e. it can be defined who is authorised to view or change the document.

Below you will find an excerpt of the additional functionalities in fx-project Open Source
that the package Invocing offers you.

Control

fx-project offers you a complete Cost accounting.

In the Cost master data: Definition, cost master data categories such as cost units, cost centres, cost types and/or activity types incl. unique cost number can be defined, which can be linked in Cost master data: Relationships to each other.

A detailed Report of the master relationships, as well as a detailed Cost accounting analysis show you all the desired cost information immediately.

The whole thing is rounded off by the Activity type hours report, a report corresponding to the actual hours report at activity type level.

Invoicing

With this package, new Outgoing invoices can be created for a main or sub-project or existing outgoing invoices can be edited. Invoices can be issued for Fixed prices or Hour-based activities. If the corresponding additional packages have been purchased, Travel costs and/or Materials can also be invoiced. Furthermore, all outgoing invoices can be listed according to search criteria to be defined, such as client, project, period and/or status, including an input option for Payments received.

Corresponding to the outgoing invoices, Incoming invoices can also be entered and managed with fx-project. This means that you always have the possibility to find out immediately which invoices are due and when.

Bonus with the purchase of one of the expansion packages.

fx-project uses the PHP extension (extension library) ChartDirector to generate and display charts and curve diagrams.

A non-purchased version is treated as an unregistered trial version, i.e. every generated chart has a note of the ChartDirector producer [Advanced Software Engineering Limited] at the bottom.



Each purchased extension package also converts an unregistered trial version into a registered full version without the need to purchase a separate key, i.e. the overlay at the bottom of the chart disappears.

This is achieved by setting a registration key [ChartDirector Redistribute License for Windows/Linux/FreeBSD] purchased from the manufacturer of the fx-project Open Source extension packages [FeRox Management Consulting GmbH & Co. KG] by the manufacturer of the ChartDirector [Advanced Software Engineering Limited].
